Pisse-Dru Beaujolais Rouge AC (France) LCBO# 2881  Find Store or Order Online

Pisse-Dru Appellation Beaujolais Contrôlée is born with unique watchfulness in the personal cellars of the well-known House of Noémie Vernaux in Beaune, the heart of the Beaujolais region in France.

The name "Pisse-Dru" comes from an amusing vintner's expression: when an old vigneron says with a smile of satisfaction on his face, "ça pisse dru", it means in French slang that the new vintage he has just tasted is to his liking and that the fresh juice of the grape will grow into a perfect and delicious bottle of wine.

90 Points, Carolyn Evans-Hammond, The Toronto Star "...It tastes bright, clean and fruity with a crush of red, ripe raspberry edged with cranberry and underbrush - that savory-earthy note that calls to mind an authum hike through the woods."
